Fri Oct 5: Taut And Fraught
As Mercury enters Scorpio your attention may be taken up with cars, computers, or equipment for home or office.

numbers are 11 and 22.

venture or achieving some physical goal. Go out of your way to avoid angry domestic scenes. Benefical colors are blossom pink and ivory. Lucky numbers are 14 and 19.
